Spring’s herald, the Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe). Saw lots in Green-Wood yesterday afternoon.

    Lovely photos but I’m still wondering about your goose, or duck, or dinosaur? Details please!

      Canada Goose. Also, dinosaur, more or less…

        And is he/she still your houseguest?

        Did you actually witness it being hatched or wake up to an empty shell?

        I’m so enthralled by this story!

        Note the date of the post. I have a tradition of April 1st natural history… curiosities.

    A phoebe has built her nest under the porch roof of my cabin for several years now. Last time I was out, she was chastising me for sitting on the porch. I think she has other plans for it this summer.
